Hello, I feel a burning sensation in my ribs not (not too far from the heart) when I deficate). I am a 49 year old male, avid cyclist, and am in very good shape. The burnigh only occurs when I deficate, and if I push, the burning intensifies (feels kind of like when you over stretch a tendon or something. It feels almost like I have a tendon running from my anus to rib cage, and "pushing" streches it out.
I do have high blood pressure, and have had a full cardiac work up about 2 years ago (stress test ultra sound, blood tests, etc) all good. I had a heart cath about 8 years ago but it came back fine (my father hadheart issues and I wanted to be sure to rule that out givent the level and intensity of excercise I do)
